The Netherlands Reinsurance Association (NRV) is a platform for everyone involved with reinsurance in the Netherlands.
On this website you can find information on the history, the activities, news items linked to the association and various links in connection with the reinsurance industry.
The topics discussed during these meetings vary greatly. For example, recent discussions included security ratings, the transport sector in the Netherlands and Solvency II.
We also regularly invite external speakers to these meetings, so they can share their vision about issues encountered and envisaged within the reinsurance sector. NRV’s informative meetings are also regularly combined with visits to special locations such as the Railway Museum in Utrecht, the Escher Museum in The Hague, the Amsterdam ArenA, the Gemeente Museum in The Hague and Slot Zeist are among those recently enjoyed.

Fluctuations in technical results can, for example, be caused by:
